The other evening I ate cheesecake as my daughter had worked hard to surprise me on my birthday. What is a Mom to do? I knew that the cream cheese used would probably have microbial enzyme in it which always sets me off. Sure enough it triggered me. I felt such internal agitation. Sleeping that night was impossible with my heart pounding, rapid breathing, mind racing and stress hormones coursing throughout my body.
I have been studying Energy Medicine (Donna Eden's work) and remembered a particular technique created by one of Donna's senior faculty members. I did it and it worked in SPECTACULAR fashion to bring my body back to normal so I could fall asleep. The whole procedure only takes a few minutes. Here is a youtube video demonstrating how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6Va1USSHzw.
Although this is not a cure, it sure is a useful tool to have handy in an emergency. For anybody trying this when in the throes of an excitotoxic reaction, please report back with your results.

Focused breathing (not relaxation breathing) like this has been well researched. Several companies sell devices that guide you to the correct breathing pace by tracking your heart rate. They say it's supposed to lower your stress hormones like cortisol. I found when I get to level 4 on the device I can sleep after an FGA reaction. One of the companies now has an Iphone ap with a monitor that gets you there for $99. My mind races after FGA and this makes me feel amazing. Way better than just relaxing.
